Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education - Event Information
Wilderness First Responder (WFR) @ Tacoma, WA
Wilderness First Responder
Outdoor professionals, those who take multi-day or longer personal trips, those who take part in high risk activities (rock climbing, whitewater paddling, mountaineering, multi-week expeditions of all kinds, etc.), or those who simply want to know more about wilderness medicine. Certification as a Wilderness First Responder is the industry standard for outdoor instructors and guides. We recommend taking the full course every six years.
Our standard WFR course is 9-days long; the practical session of our hybrid WFR is only 5-days but requires pre-course study and successful completion of three online exams in order to attend. Adult & Child CPR/AED certification is included.
